Blackalicious produced a record of such sonic depth and lyrical ambition it
proudly stands alongside the work of Bay Area funk fathers Sly Stone and
Shuggie Otis, or hip-hop classics like Outkast's Aquemini and The Roots' Things
Fall Apart.Lyricist Gab († June 18, 2021) moved beyond the introspection of
earlier albums, going deep on "Black Diamonds and Pearls" as a pregnant teen
conquers her fears, while on the epic "The Fall and Rise of Elliott Brown", a lost,
incarcerated boy transforms into a leader of his community. What Gab achieved
lyrically, Xcel accomplishes musically, with beats that touch on classic funk
sidling cosily alongside the orchestral sweep of Stereolab. "The Craft," Xcel says,
"is our passion to bring discipline to this music, the passion to keep growing, keep
stretching, keep doing things we haven't before. The Craft is what we live for.

The Craft features guest appearances by George Clinton, Floetry, Lateef The
Truthspeeker, Lyrics Born and Pigeon John.
Blackalicious is loved by fans of The Roots, Jill Scott, Eryka Badu,
Mos Def, Talib Kweli.
